It was a brutal Father's Day, June 16, 1974, when my Dad's fatal heart attack took him from us.
"And now he's gone at only 45 years of age. It's difficult to imagine him having a heart attack. It must have been massive because Dick's heart had room for everyone. It's ironic that he died on Father's Day because his eight children are testimony to love for kids."
Words taken from a 1974 article in the Flint Journal written about my Dad and also featured in my blog.
